Printed Photo Organization
Do you have boxes, bags, tubs, and closets with printed photos, home movies, slides and memorabilia? Schedule a time to bring them ALL and I'll help you make sense of the mess. We will decide the best way to organize those photos based on your needs. We will set up a system so you can preserve the memories, not the mess. The session fee is $250 plus tax and covers 3 hours of hands-on organizing time.

Scanning Printed Photos
I recommend that printed photos are organized before scanning so that duplicates are not scanned and they can be better organized as digital images. There are several steps to getting your photos ready to scan. You can do this yourself, or we can work together to get this done during a photo organizing session.
1. Remove photos from any albums.
2. Group photos by year and size.
3. Label each group with the year so this is included on your digital image.
If you have traditional album pages, these can also be scanned to have a back-up copy or to create a digital book. This is a wonderful option if you have multiple family members who would like a copy and preserves the handwriting in a book. Here is an example of this type of book: Traditional Book to Digital.
How much does scanning cost?
4"x 6" Photos -- $75 for the first 100 photos, then $0.50 per photo.
Other size photos or slides - $75 for the first 50 photos, then $1 per photo.
Scanned photos are turned the right direction and uploaded to an online account and can also be added to a flash drive. They are dated by year so be sure to have them grouped this way when you bring them.
Extra editing of photos as well as adding names, places, and stories included with the photos adds to your memory, but this does require additional time. This can be part of your organizing package.
